While a postblueberry America's pancakes languish, Belgium's bold advancements in waffle technology have made waffles the second-most valid currency in the European Union. Today's Groupon gives you ample reason to finally let go of that Eggo: for $8, you get $16 worth of breakfast and lunch fare at Taste of Belgium.
Taste of Belgium follows an authentic family recipe to make its waffles out of thick dough and coarse Belgian beet sugar. A specialized cast-iron press then crushes the dough into its distinctive waffle shape and caramelizes the sugar in the process. This gives the waffle a rich vanilla flavor and a delightful sweetness that doesn't require syrup. As such, you can eat waffles on the go without plates, forks, or Catholic guilt.
Stop by Taste of Belgium to snack on mini quiches ($6), breakfast burritos ($4), and savory crêpes ($6.50). Order Belgian waffles plain ($3.50), as they do in the waffleful motherland, or get it smothered in whipped cream with fruit or chocolate for an extra dollar. If you can't eat it all in one go, take it home. Belgian waffles have a seven-day shelf life and are easily reheated in a toaster or microwave, and less easily in a butter churn.
